I want to buy a autoloader, my go to is a Mosin/Nagant three line rifle currently, but I'd like to get a autoloader, the only reason I held back is ignition, I'm worried about ignition, and every autoloader has to many parts for me, what autoloader has the least moving parts.
>>50822220The count of moving parts doesn't really matter as much as how beefy those parts are and how low the odds are that any of them might break or malfunction.There are many designs that have been around for a long time, have had lots of development/bug fixing/iterations and now have an excellent track record for reliability. For your purposes I would look specifically at>SKS and foreign copies thereof>AK family, ideally milled receiver but AKM is ok>H&K G3 family, probably PTR-91>Current generation Ruger Mini-14All of those are simple and rugged rifles that work reliability first and foremost, with other performance characteristics such as accuracy/modularity/ergonomics/light weight being a lower priority.
>>50822220>what autoloader has the least moving parts.sten
>be FSB sniper, 1993>use rifle that that was carried not just by your father, or your grandfather, or your great-grandfather, but your great-great grandfather>literally a 102 year old rifle that has seen service in two world wars, the most devastating civil war of the 20th Century, and countless brushfire conflicts in faraway lands, by Communist and Fascist alikeHelluva history if you think about it.
>>50822220The firing mechs of most autoloaders don't have more moving parts than a given bolt action. Ignition shouldn't worry you. Any centetfire closed bolt gun other than the AN94 and G11 operates under basically the same principles to ignite the cartridge.
>>50822220SKS, just google a picture of it very few parts.
>>50822220AK or AR. It's boring but that's the answer.
UnIronically an AR
>>50822220>I'm worried about ignitionWhat? You mean like the firing-pin setting off the primer? Unless you're looking at a .22 caliber rimfire gun, or some antique .44 rimfire, this is a well solved problem, reliable centerfire primers goes back over a century, as you would be able to attest from your three line rifle.>and every autoloader has to many parts for meWere you fucking frozen since 1893? Pic related is idiotproof, if you can operate a 91/30, you can operate any AR15.
>>50823692>M16A1>no three-prong flash hiderYou had it so close it's painful.
>>50823726The three-pronged flashhider was phased out during the A1 you fucking spastic.
>>50822280Mosins are still issued by parts of the Finnish military and most of theirs were built on pre-WW2 recievers
>>50823773Yeah but that's not the quintessential A1, the kind you carry through the jungle while helicopters blasting Fortunate Son fly overhead.
>>50823830The quintessential A1 has a full birdcage.
>>50823726>>50823830Look at this fuckin retard backpedaling lmao
>>50823830Yes, it is, dumbfuck, here's an actual M16A1 which was issued and carried in Vietnam. Notice the birdcage hider? Reign in the Dunning-Kruger.They got rid of the three-pronged hider because it kept getting stuck on jungle vegetation as people were just moving around through trees and shrub.
